U-19: today the youth national team of Ukraine will start in the qualification round of Euro-2023

Today, November 17, the youth national team of Ukraine U-19 (football players not older than 2004) will start the qualification for Euro-2023 with a match against Kosovo.

In the qualifying round of Euro-2023 (U-19), the blue and yellow team got into group 3, within which they will play against Kosovo, Cyprus and Sweden. The mini-tournament will be held from November 17 to 23 in the Swedish cities of Norrköping ("Ostgotaporten" stadium) and Linköping ("Linköping Arena").

Overall, the top two teams from each group in the qualifying round and the best third-place finisher (based on the results of the matches against the first and second teams in the group) will join Portugal in the elite qualifying round in the spring of 2023. Malta's national team won a direct pass to the final stage as the host of the tournament. The winners of the seven groups of the elite round will go there.

"So far, we have only one game of the Kosovo team from last year at our disposal. But we will come out of the situation in such a way that our first match is against this opponent, and we will study Cyprus and Sweden during the competition. On the other hand, rivals have a big problem, how to study us (smiles). We are going to the qualifying tournament as a dark horse.

Despite all the circumstances, our goal is the first place in our quartet. And how everything will turn out - we'll see, this is football, which is often unpredictable," - said the day before, the head coach of the Ukrainian team, Serhiy Nagornyak.
